I’ve slotted this in as an extra article (it has not been emailed) because I doubt these tickets will stick around for long and I’d prefer Head for Points readers to get them.
Marriott Rewards has just dropped VIP hospitality packages for the rugby at Twickenham next month onto its website.
The games available are:
Barbarians v New Zealand (4th November)
England v Argentina (11th November)
This is what you get:
- Tickets in a Hospitality Suite at Twickenham Stadium
- Complimentary in-suite catering and beverage
- Private VIP stadium entry
- Experience is for two people
If you are interested, I would jump on this immediately.
I do NOT recommend moving American Express Membership Rewards points to Starwood Preferred Guest as this will take 2-3 days and the seats are very likely to have gone by then.
